It's just a different way of doing it. Mah is all that matters and is adjusted acording to servo draw and servo quantity.

Like before I use a very small 2S and small regulator in my Strega Mustang. This plane weight matters as weight is lost speed. Flying it at most you are using the ailerons and rudder at once so it is probably drawing less than 1 Amp on a regulator rated for 10A.

My Avistar and Bobcat both have 8 servos so I use a 3S 2200 in them. Both can fly ALL day without a recharge.

The other good thing about Lipos is they retain their voltage better than a Nixx battery. Even though they do get lower it is not as drastic especially at such low levels of discharge.

I got into this hobby when Lipos and brushless was common place.
I don't even know how to charge a Nixx?????

I do NOT use cheap Hk electronics though.... Have yet to have 1 issue with any of them.

Use what your comfortable with.
